Well, since the stars are hardcoded, changing the location is just a matter of going into e.g. Celestia or Stellarium, changing your location and looking up the positions of the same stars...

There was a website I'd stumbled across at one point that let you generate a star map for arbitrary locations...ah, here:  http://www.extrasolar.net/starmap.asp

The planet function I have uses generic Keplerian orbital calculations so will apply to anything with an orbit (I think...) and could be used for multi-star systems as well.  Maybe even for the sun and moon, in a loose approximation?  Need to check that out.
